What should a person who his father borrowed with interest(Ribba) do

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Our father bought the house we currently live in before I was born. I am now 22yrs. Back then my family were being evicted from the place they were living in at the time and my father was under pressure to find my family a place to live. So, he bought a house using a bank mortgage. The mortgage was interest based as the system is over here in England. About two years after I was born, my father died and had not finished repaying the bank. The rest of the mortgage was paid off by my older brother, who was in employment at the time.
Now my worry is if it is permissible for me to remain living in the house bought by my father and also if any of us can inherit a share of its money if it were to be sold?
I look forward to the reply.

Praise be to Allaah.

Seek forgiveness for your father, and your brother has to repent to Allaah. It is OK if you want to live in that house, and to take your share of the price when it is sold.

And Allaah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
